An Enriching Diamond Head Experience
Last year, over 1,000,000 visitors hiked Diamond Head, making it Oahu’s third largest visitor attraction. Diamond Head Visitor Center does not offer escorted tours of the hike; this hiking audio guide is the official Diamond Head tour offered by the State of Hawaii and Pacific Historic Parks.
Diamond Head crater is just minutes from Waikiki. This incredible self-guided audio tour comes with a four-color souvenir map guide and focuses on the history, legends, culture, geography, plant and animal life, music, and scenery of the Diamond Head State Monument. Learn how ancient Hawaiians considered Diamond Head a sacred location and how the U.S. Military used Diamond Head for their first line of defense when protecting Oahu’s southern shores during World War II.
Diamond Head State Monument is one of Hawaii’s most recognized landmarks, and for decades, visitors have hiked to the summit of Diamond Head to enjoy the breathtaking views of Oahu. Diamond Head State Monument is maintained by Hawaii’s State Parks and is a popular historic trail that offers a memorable Hawaiian adventure for the entire family.
This great tour is like having your own State Park Ranger provide a great narrated tour on your hike that is both fun and informative!
